The Fall

September 9, 2009

We’re down to the low 50s at night now and 60s and 70s during the day.  Longest stretch of sunny weather with no rain that I can recall (not a drop the past 10 days).  This has given the squash and the toms (aside from the cold nights) a real shot in the arm.

Another 4-5 on the way if the weather holds out.  Defying its description, summer squash made an appearance:

Zephyr is a neat hybrid from Johnny’s.  I have about 10 toms doing their best to hurry up before cold weather strikes:

No idea which varieties these are, labels got “misplaced” during the seedling phase.  Put in a 2nd planting of lettuce, broccoli and Kale for Fall.  Beans have slowed to a crawl with the cooler weather.  Still bizarre to me that seasons change.  Living in Texas for 20+ years will do that to you.
